Beer is probably the most popular drink choice for St. Patrick’s Day festivities, but if beer isn’t your thing, there is another popular drink: Irish whiskey.
A couple years ago, I was introduced to Jameson Irish Whiskey. It wasn’t St Patrick’s Day and it wasn’t an Irish locale. It was Downtown Las Vegas — Fremont Street to be exact. After spending the day learning at a food conference, we headed out with friends to Fremont Street to enjoy the sites and see the Fremont Street Experience.
After spending the day learning at a food conference, we headed out with friends to Fremont Street to enjoy the sites and see the Fremont Street Experience. Our fellow food blogger friends ordered a simple drink that was new to both David and me: Jameson and ginger ale, also known as a “Whiskey Ginger” or an “Irish Buck”.
This began my love of Jameson Irish Whiskey. While a Whiskey Ginger drink is a delicious and easy option for St. Patrick’s Day, today I’m sharing a different cocktail recipe with Jameson. This recipe is also absolutely perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, but also excellent for anyone (like me) who loves mint.
To make this Iced Mint Irish Coffee cocktail recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients: Bailey’s Irish Creme, Jameson Irish Whiskey, and your favorite creme de menthe liqueur.
You will also need cold coffee. You can make it in a coffee maker and let it cool down and refrigerate. Or, you can buy a premade cold brew. This recipe was made with Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee which is readily available at grocery stores.
If you want to make your own cold brew at home, we bought our son this cold brew coffee maker for Christmas and he loves it!
In a cocktail shaker filled with some ice, you’ll add 1 ounce of Jameson Irish Whiskey.
Then, you’ll add 1 ounce of Baileys Irish Creme to the cocktail shaker, as well as 1 1/2 ounces of Baileys Irish Cream and 3 1/2 ounces of cold coffee.
Shake it all up in your shaker and then strain your Mint Irish Iced Coffee cocktail mixture into a standard rocks glass filled with fresh ice. For a nice presentation, we recommend adding a garnish of fresh mint leaves.
